Ingredients: 1 Angel Food cake mix
1 cake mix of any flavor (we've tried strawberry and chocolate, both are very good)
Garnishes, like mini-chocolate chips, strawberries, sprinkles, sprigs of mint, the options are endless!
Take the two cake mixes and mix them together very thoroughly in a large bowl (one with a cover, preferably because you will have a LOT left over). Once the mixes are very well-combined,
measure 3 level tablespoons of the mixture into a coffee mug. Then, add 2 tablespoons of water to the mug and use a spoon to mix the dry and wet ingredients.
Microwave for 1 minute on high. We let the mug cakes cool for a few minutes, then we put some Reddi-whip on top and sprinkled with mini chocolate chips.
Deliciousness awaits! We played around with adding chocolate chips to the cake batter--VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!! Also, we had some fresh strawberries, so we placed a slice on top for a very oh-la-la presentation! I have some bigger (not huge) coffee mugs and so for dad, the girls used 6 Tbsp. dry mix, 4 Tbsp. water, and about 1 1/2 minutes in the micro. Dad, of course, also needed double the Reddi-whip (he's a big fan).
We've made at least 2 dozen and it doesn't feel like we've hardly made a dent in the dry mix. It's a great gift idea, though, especially with a pretty mug and a can of Reddi-whip. I'm sure it will keep, and the mug cakes make a great afternoon snack--just the right size and a real treat. Maybe not the most nutritious, but, you only live once!!!!
